Werth seeking a Record Seventh Olympic Dressage Title in Tokyo

Isabell Werth of Germany, a dressage athlete, is returning to the Olympics after already winning six golds and a total of ten medals at the last five Olympic Games, beginning in Barcelona in 1992.

With a victory in either the individual or team dressage competitions, Werth will set a new record as the most decorated rider in Olympic history with seven gold medals.

The International Equestrian Federation (FEI) dressage world standings see Werth coming in at the top as he lands in Tokyo.

But she knows that the dressage competition, which will begin with qualification tomorrow (July 24) at Equestrian Park, is inherently unpredictable due to its setting.

Without the cheers of the audience, Werth believes the horses have a harder time making their way to the starting gate.

Riders had a hard time getting ready for this year’s races because of the limited schedule over the past year because of COVID-19.

Conclusion

At the Tokyo Olympics in 2020, Isabell Werth showed the world why she is the best of all time.

For Germany, her performance in the Dressage Grand Prix Special was the deciding factor in winning the gold.

Even though this is her second straight team dressage gold medal, her performance here is exceptional and warrants more recognition.
